I figured. :)

The group "dba" is stored in IPA.  Here's a funny thing, though (short rundown):

Installed RHEL 6.3 on Satelite server, joined it to the domain.

Try to install Satellite: get the "Could not install database."

I try to filter out the group in IPA, try to install Satellite, get:
"The group 'dba' should exist."  This makes me think that the filter
is doing every "dba" not just dba on the IPA server.

I removed the Satellite server from IPA (ipa-client-install
--uninstall) and I get the same message (dba should exist.)

Fun stuff.

Now I'm re-installing RHEL so I can start from scratch, and I'll
attempt to install Satellite without joining it to the domain.  I'm
not fond of this option -- I don't want to have stand-alone machines
that I have to manage separately, that's why I installed IPA in the
first place.
